Never Enough

  • Life's been sucked out of me
    And this routine's killing me
    I did it to myself
    Again I said this would not be
    Somebody put me out of my misery
    Expression, stimulation
    Hollow sense of myself
    I did it to myself again
    Somebody put me in my place

    Never enough, Never enough
    Do I deserve what I got?

    Now everything's okay
    There's nothing wrong with me
    This seems unnatural
    To me I'd say in every way
    Somebody kick me in the face
    Now something's wrong with me
    I'm bleeding profusely
    And this seems natural
    To me I fuck up everyday
    Somebody put me in my place

    Never enough, Never enough
    Do I deserve what I got?
    Never enough, Never enough
    Do I deserve what I got?
    What I got, what I got
    What I got, what I got

    I feel as if I'm running
    Back to where I started
    You ask what's wrong with me
    And I say nothing
    Is everything okay?
    Is something wrong with me?
    Pushing and pulling feelings
    Eternal my heart is yours
    I feel as if I'm running
    I feel as if I'm running
    I feel as if I'm running
    Run
    Life will knock me down!

    Never enough, Never enough
    Do I deserve what I got?
    Never enough, Never enough
    Life will knock me down! Writer/s: TOBIN ESPERANCE, JERRY HORTON, JACOBY SHADDIX, DAVID BUCKNER

  • D-rail from Virginia Even though this song came out in 2000 and I was somewhat going through all that then. I, 20 years later, found myself in the deepest, darkest place of my mind and felt the exact way this song explains it right down to the last lyric!! I am still going through it but listening to Papa Roach has always been my escape from my life, even though no matter what is going on in my life at the time, whatever album that has been out I’ve related to every song and lyric. I love this band. So I don’t know if this comment gets to the band or not, but I just want to say THANK YOU FOR MAKING AND CREATING SUCH GREAT MUSIC!!!
  • Robert from Lethbridge, AbDo believe this is about people taking advantage of their fame and realizing do i deserve what i've got, but there is never enough or whatever.. i believe that's what it is or at least close.
